The conventional printers for paper documents are evolving in the era for additive manufacturing to 3D printers. The major risks stem from inadequate supply chain protection and theft of intellectual property.


The strategy will require at least:

  • securing the computer aided design (CAD) file delivery with authentication of source and authorization by the publisher
  • embedding protection to prevent theft of intellectual property (CAD files)
  • extending tamper-resistant protection across the supply chain from the developer to the publisher
  • protecting containerized applications for workload isolation and key protection in additive manufacturing
  • securing the integrity of lateral data transport for interoperability – to deliver technical data in connected digital manufacturing equipment

Open Source Replacement for
FIPS 140-2 Compliance for Printers

  • Most printing done via enterprise applications
  • Needs strong security, TLS and IPsec to connect to backend workflow
  • Needs migration from open source
  • Needs TPM 2.0 support for trust anchor
  • Needs FIPS 140-2 validation for government, financial, legal and MNCs
  • License for Mocana TrustEdge™
  • FIPS 140-2 Level 1 validated cryptographic engine
  • IPsec and TLS protocols stacks with secure element based key protection
  • OpenSSL Connector for migration without reengineering applications
  • Easy implementation of cyber protection
  • Enables printers to integrate securely with applications and backend workflow
  • Hardens Linux platforms
  • Achieves product security certifications
  • Accelerates innovation with Mocana TrustCore™ development framework and APIs

Printing: Digital Supply Chain Protection


Printing: Containerized CAD Application Protection


Perimeter-based defenses and threat detection technologies are not enough to defend against modern cyber attacks. Many business printers, multi-function printers, digital presses, scanners, copiers, 3D printers, gateways, and Internet of Things (IoT) edge devices are vulnerable due to a lack of strong cryptographic controls, including: multi-factor authentication, secure boot, secure update, and secure, encrypted communications.


More than €20 million is at stake per incident of noncompliance.


Ensuring data privacy in printing and business systems that are vulnerable to physical compromise is critical. For printers deployed in industrial environments, compromised printers could be used to launch lateral attacks onto SCADA and industrial control system (ICS) devices. In operating technology (OT) environments, oftentimes physical human safety and uptime drive the security needs of plants and large SCADA systems.

A Cybersecurity System Tailored for Printing


Used by more than 200 OEMs to protect more than 100 million devices
